The Gargoyle Overhead takes flight!

Philippa Dowding launched her new children’s book, "The Gargoyle Overhead" at the Bloor/Gladstone Library on Saturday, May 8th. A full house of nearly eighty people, both children and adults, listened attentively as she read about Gargoth the gargoyle’s first (unfortunate) meeting with a human boy named Philip, 400 years ago.

A lively question and answer period followed, in which Philippa got to explain what it was like to write a sequel, and that no, as far as she knew, gargoyles did not ride dinosaurs!

Lots of books were sold and signed, and a good time was had by everyone in attendance. Thanks to Emma Dolan of Napoleon for playing bookseller for the day.
